Online orders are processed within *3-4 business days or *7-9 business days depending on availability.
Due to the current COVID-19 pandemic, our shipping and processing times have been extended. Please note, we are still shipping and attending to customer service inquiries as per usual. Delays in supply chain, shorter fulfillment schedules, as well as extended processing from USPS have forced these delays for the time being. Thank you for your patience and business as we navigate these difficult times!
Order processing time is separate from shipping time requested.
Yes, we ship all over the world. Shipping costs will apply, and will be added at checkout. We run discounts and promotions all year, so stay tuned for exclusive deals.
We try and offer as many upcoming projects available for pre-order when the releases have moved into production. However, due to the nature of manufacturing and production, pre-order dates may change.
If your pre-ordered items are holding your package from arriving please email us with a request to ship the in-stock items and pre-orders when they become available.
If your order contains pre-order items we will hold the package until all titles are available to ship. Please specify in the comments section of the checkout if you would like to:
a) Hold your entire order until it can be entirely fulfilled or,
b) Have the in-stock items shipped immediately and the pre-ordered items ship when available. Please note that option B may require additional shipping charges as multiple packages will be shipped.
Payment for pre-orders/orders containing pre-orders are captured at checkout, not when your pre-order is shipped. We use this process because it helps ensure that you are secured a copy of your desired record/cd/cassette right away.
It depends on where you are. Orders processed here will take 5-7 business days to arrive. Overseas deliveries can take anywhere from 7-16 days. Delivery details will be provided in your confirmation email.
With the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, a large majority of shipments going through USPS are experiencing major delays ranging from 14-30 days regardless of shipping method chosen. As a result, tracking updates are taking longer than usual to accurately display shipping statuses. We were informed by our reps that these packages are not missing and will indeed be delivered. Due to the uncertainty of state closures, we anticipate these delays to persist throughout the year. We want to thank you for your understanding and support of Fat Beats during these times, your patience is highly appreciated.
Because of the aforementioned delays, we want customers to heed caution when placing orders with Priority/First Class mail. These shipping methods are still subject to the ongoing delays and are not guaranteed to arrive by their expected delivery dates. Also keep in mind that Media Mail is the lowest priority method which makes it more prone to extreme delays.
International delays are taking anywhere from 5-12 weeks to be delivered. Customs are heavily backed up due to Covid restrictions leaving them severely understaffed and backed up.
Upon order shipment, you should receive a shipping confirmation at the e-mail address used to place the order, which will contain all relevant shipment details, including what is shipping your way, the address it's going to and the tracking number for that shipment.

Don't have your order number? Confused your order's status? Does it look like your order is going somewhere other than your address? Not to fear! Drop us a line as soon as you realize there might be an issue, and we'll sort it out as soon as possible.
If your order has not yet shipped, we can change your shipping address -- please contact us here as soon as possible to make those changes.
If your order has already shipped and you would like your order re-shipped to a different address, get in touch with us as soon as possible and we'll let you know if we're able to re-route or reship your order.
Please allow 24-48 hours for tracking to update and begin reflecting progress.
Note that tracking does not always update in real-time and delays in tracking updates do not necessarily reflect a lost or misdelivered package.
If tracking shows that your package has been delivered but you have yet to receive it, please allow 24 hours for it to be delivered, then get in touch with your local post office, as all USPS claims must be filed by the recipient and they're usually able to help track down the package. If they're unable to help you, or if you have further questions, please get in touch with us.
Note that if a lost or misdelivered package was shipped to the shipping address as entered, additional shipping charges may be due before that package can be re-shipped.
You'll automatically receive an e-mail the moment we ship your order out to you listing the contents of the order, shipment information and more. If you don't receive an e-mail from us within 1-2 business days of placing your order, please contact us to find out why.
